Care

It is our duty as humans to care. 

Years ago there was a woman in my life who could no longer see a purpose in staying alive. She was really just an acquaintance but I was her choice of lifeline. For months she would call five to ten times a day sometimes pleading with me to permit her to die. 

Of course I beseeched her to seek help and eventually I contacted her brother,though I had sworn not to.  Time and medication stabilized her and I was no longer needed. But it taught me never to look the other way, to always speak up and offer assistance. 

What about you? 

Can you help? 

Do you need help?
